Slam goes north to take on rivals

Slam PR, the Weber Shandwick-owned lifestyle agency, will launch a Manchester office to challenge local agencies such as Vertigo and Brazen.

Slam North has recruited five Mancunians to be based in Weber Shandwick North’s offices. The new agency will be headed up by account director Ric Coggins, who has been brought across from Tangerine PR.

Coggins said: ‘We’ll come up against agencies like Brazen and Vertigo, which operate in the sectors we are trying to make a real push in.’
